Spoiler Alert: Tom Cruise dies a lot in Edge of Tomorrow. Ok, that's barely a spoiler, as the premise of the film involves Cruise's character living the same day over and over, as it resets every time he dies.

Clearly, Jeremy Renner loves his franchises. That’s why he’s a key player in not just The Avengers, but the Hansel & Gretel, Mission: Impossible and Bourne film series too.
